Kamron Coleman (B 1972) began his professional art career in his early twenties as a permanent gallery artist in Chelan, where both sides of his family have roots. He spent 19 years as a self-employed stonemason, sculptor, and fabricator and finisher in many mediums for the construction industry. He secured Utility and Design patents for innovations in construction and wood-fired pizza ovens of his own manufacture. Kamron went on to stand up the sand casting discipline at the world-renowned Walla Walla Foundry, where he pioneered radical metal casting techniques for elements of some of the most expensive contemporary art in the world.
Since meeting his wife, harpist Bethany Evans, Kamron moved to the Willamette Valley, Oregon, where he has collaborated directly with symphony executives to create symphony-specific fine art for fundraising for symphonies across the United States.
Kamron’s painting, “Derby Day” is a finalist for Churchill Downs’ official 2022 “Art of the Derby.”
Kamron’s work also reflects theological depth. He has created a display called, “Apotheosis”, an elaborate 17-foot long scroll depicting ancient Near East temple themes, hypothesizing a possible LDS Christian relationship to the most ancient and mysterious temple traditions.
His style is recognized for manipulating the viewer’s focus. In this age of high-definition imaging, Kamron’s work plays on themes of the more natural experience of seeing the world both in and out of focus.
Kamron welcomes organizational and private commissions and works by private sales.
